The design I came up turned out nice. Should have some pics up 2nite. My offer was accepted for the land. I plan to eventually build a house on it and have a place to put my Man Cave and store my equipment.

The feeling is mutual. I hate red mulch, but sometimes it looks good.

Reading a few posts back about your issues with the TT pumps. I had a similar issue with my Cougar (same pumps). It was pulling pretty good to one side. A new Wix filter and Castrol 20W50 did the trick! Now its just a little out of balance to one side. Hardly noticeable. Runs about $30 at Oriellys.

What are the shrubs on the ends? They look like Cleyera but it's hard to tell from the distance. Two of the other shrubs look like a type of Euonymus which tend to be mildew and insect prone. I can see the Indian Hawthorns, Boxwoods, and what appears to be one of the larger leafed Viburnums in the middle area.

It appears with the low elevation of the sigh lettering that the shrubs in front of the Hawthorns are going to become problematic. I like the Agapanthus and the Dianthus/kale mix will winter well. It looks like the other annuals are Petunias and Snap dragons? Does the Mexican Heather tend to survive the winter in your area?
